My husband and I have three rescued Mustangs; his is now 24 years old. Ranger was nine years old when we adopted him - pretty set in his wild ways - and was a wonderful mover. Just last year, I noticed him moving very stiffly and not wanting to move faster than a walk. We turn them out to pasture for five months every winter. This spring when we brought them in, Ranger wasn't moving well. I decided to give Natural Stride a try because I liked the philosophy behind it: get rid of the inflammation, then treat the joint. My husband was very skeptical. In only 10 days we saw a marked difference in his movement. When we saddled our horses up to ride with some friends, whom we told to leave us behind if they wanted to go quicker. To our surprise, when they started getting ahead of us, Ranger broke into a trot to keep up, on his own. Soon he was showing up the others and looking quite proud of himself. Since then he has proven himself quite capable many times over. When I call him to dinner he now trots across the corral to meet me instead of struggling up the slope. I am getting constant 'thank-you's' from my husband every time he takes his horse out. So I am very pleased with the results and want to say a big "Thank you" to you also.Juanita Martin Allenspark Lodge, B&B, Colorado

As a Member of the Board of Directors for the Tahoe Rim Trail Association (a 165+ mile trail, consisting of eight segments that encircle Lake Tahoe), I am frequently consulted for advice on riding the Trail by horseback. Having only hiked the entire Rim Trail by foot, I have made it my mission to ride it and have chosen to do it on my Kentucky Mountain Spotted Saddle Horse, F&R's Pony Girl. My girl Pony and I began this project last year and have now completed all but two of the segments.
The longest segment of the Tahoe Rim Trail is a 33-mile stretch that runs from the Echo Lakes to Barker Pass, and it is by far the rockiest segment of the eight. Pony and I completed this segment last year in 2 ½ days. We started out this 33-mile segment in a pair of two-year old Cavallo boots. My friends, well . . . they rode that segment in newer Easyboots, which ended up not being so easy. While my friends had difficulties getting their boots on their horses, Pony and I stood and patiently waited. While my friends had difficulties getting their boots to stay on their horses and had to stop to put them back on, Pony and I would take a break and patiently wait. When my friends had to tighten wires and replace lost screws, Pony and I waited. Pony and I walked right through piles and miles of rocks, lakes, streams, boggy meadows, mud and some pretty rugged terrain and never missed a step (or a boot for that matter).
Pony and I have now just finished up another season of riding in those exact same boots (for a total of four years), and I know we are gonna just keep on going. With only two more segments to complete the Rim Trail, Pony and I will not only have made then entire 165+ miles in just one set of (used) Cavallo boots, but we will have ridden lots and lots of other trail miles in those same boots. Pony and I want to thank Cavallo for making such a reliable, easy-to-use and enduring product.
